When should I buy my heating oil?

The dog days of August might not be the time you typically spend a lot of time thinking about heating oil – but perhaps you should, especially this year.

You see, heating oil prices are currently down about 20 percent from where they were last year at this time. In large part that’s due to shifts in the global market for oil…but low offseason demand for fuel also helps.

Protect yourself from heating season spikes with our fixed price program

Since so many unpredictable factors affect the price of heating oil (the weather, politics, and global market forces, to name three big ones), you need some way to minimize the risk of runaway oil prices.

That’s why Southville petroleum offers price protection to help keep your heating oil bills off the rollercoaster.

When you sign up for Fixed Price Program, you’ll lock in your heating oil price for the season – which means you’ll never pay more than the price you agreed on for all the oil you’ll need this year. Combine Fixed Price with our Budget Plan for the ultimate in “set-it-and-forget-it” heating oil service.
